Look Up (Spoken Word) – An Important Message in a Changing World

Gary Vaynerchuk: Between The Clouds & The Dirt (Video)

As huge fan of Gary Vaynerchuk, it didn’t take long for me to pick up on the new short movie he released to his YouTube followers last week. In the short movie he talks about his notion of being Between the Clouds and the Dirt and focusing on nothing between his bigger dream, goals and strategy and working on the specific actions, plans and work needed to achieve them.

Gary also talks about marketing, social media and enterprise in the video, but bear with it a bit. All-in-all, Gary has some really good lessons and advice to learn.

Check out the Video Below! …And don’t forget to comment your thoughts below too.

Inspires Me: The World Cup Bond… We Are One

2014 World Cup Brazil InspirationThe 2014 World Cup has been live in Brazil for officially 7 days today and we’ve seen both some amazing scenes of sport but also some extraordinary shows of support and bond too.

I’m from the UK and so ofcourse, I support England. Approximately 5000 British supporters flew out to see our opening match in the middle of the rainforest last week and many millions more have been watching eagerly around the world, to see their home teams play as well.

But this post is not about Football or Fifa, or even about countries or nationalities specifically, but rather the support shown, the bond brought and the atmosphere created around the world by such an extravagant and important event.

Regardless of its cost or point, I don’t think anyone could disagree that the world cup as a whole plays an amazing role in the ever increasing world bond we have. And it’s this world bondnwhich it creates, that inspires me and I want to talk to you about today. » Read more..

Inspires Me: Human Past, Present & Future

Moon, Earth, Space Panaram, Human Civilizations FutureI watched a video from Carl Sagan a few weeks ago and with it came a flashback of inspiration. It’s always marvelled me how the human race works together to progress as a group and this video, for me, just brings back to home the species that we all do in fact come from and the purpose that we all as humans have in common.

We conquered the land, seas and skies. We conquered the world as one and now we’re just at the beginnings of our venture out in to space. So should we still be fighting wars? Should we still be arguing, complaining, thinking only about ourselves? No, because when you think of the bigger picture, those little things matter no more, but by holding on to them so dear as we do, we’re only hold ourselves back.

I’ve wrote about my inspiration from the thought of being a single influencer of a much bigger team of our civilization before. I wrote about it quite extensively in my first ‘Inspires Me’ post about Maersk here.

So I shan’t repeat myself again, but if you have a spare moment to watch this video from Carl Sagan and consider our human purpose in this world, then I highly recommended you do! It’s really quite marvellous and inspiring to think how far we’ve come and yet how far we still have to go as team. » Read more..

Jamie Dunmore: My Call For Humanity [Video]

An eye opening spoken word piece, covering the serious topics of our humanity and our future. I think poetry aside, Jamie highlights some really key issues facing our world today in his video, but more importantly he covers the many issues facing ourselves to.

So take a listen and think. What does Jamie say that rings true in me? Because humanity and humans are facing issues like never before, but nothing is happening to change. However, we know that change is the first step towards future success, so think, what changes should you begin to make?

Train Travel – How Train Journeys Inspire Me…

train-travelYesterday I once again caught the train as I frequently do and have felt a little spark of inspiration since.

I sometimes catch the train to my families holiday-home on the coast of Wales for those short breaks and weekends away. But more commonly, it’s just for a short journey from Wolverhampton to Birmingham and so forth, such as today.

If you follow me on Twitter () you’ll know I attended The Photography Show at the NEC Birmingham yesterday. There I got to look at so great kit and of course, some very expensive kit to! I went into a few seminars/lectures, including ‘Capturing your Purpose’ from Aspire Training, which I may blog about latter on in the week, and had generally a great time.

However, the most inspirational part of the day, although I can normally find inspiration in anything, was most certainly the time around a variety of people and specifically the fairly smooth, yet typically busy, 30 minute train ride home. » Read more..
